New Nissan van to be based on the Renault FlexEVan
Renault will launch its FlexEVan on the LCV market starting in 2026.
It will be the first software-defined vehicle and will be shared with Nissan in Europe.
The new modular model, FlexEVan, is now set to be a key part of Renault and Nissan future LCV strategy. It promises significantly lower purchase and running costs for buyers.
A first version of the FlexEVan, called the Hippo, was already showcased. It had a footprint similar to the Kangoo, but with the cargo space of the much bigger Trafic.
This is due to optimised packaging made possible by the flexible electric driveline components.
